We really do operate a drug-free workplace.
All of our timbers possess some type of imperfection, and certain flaws lend themselves better to one project than they do another. Some flaws, just do not have a place in one of our projects.
So tie selection can be a deeply contemplative thing.
And while they may all be unique, when you pack hundreds in together and they are grayed out from being weathered, well they tend to be hard to tell apart at times.
So as we weigh our options on the pros and cons of the timber for the project, we need a bookmark of sorts - a colored pyramid. And then, once we've decided, we go back and use the pyramids to determine which stock gets pulled.
OK, I know. But really, we do run a drug-free workplace.
